If you can get a socket on the two lower nuts that hold the 3rd member to the rear, then it is an 8 inch. if you can't, it is a 9 inch

there should be a tag attached to the rear also. 2nd line should read something like this:

2.79 8 XXX

where the 1st #'s are the ratio, then the ring gear diameter...

i pulled the tag and it reads:

WCL-N3
2.80 5CA 865

what does all this mean? i've got it figured out that it's an 8" but i would like to know about the rest.
